Coffin Sally – Port Fairy – Australia

A beautiful place. When you walk the streets at 8pm on a Tuesday night, you would think you’re the only living soul on the streets that night. But open the door towards the bar and restaurant of Coffin Sally, and you will know where the people hang around. Coffin Sally offers great pizza and a…

La Bimba – Great ocean road – Australia

It was delicious. We were sent to La Bimba by the owner of Ipsos, another great restaurant at the Great ocean road. We were lucky to have a table for two with no reservation. Although it was a Monday evening, in a small town, the place was full. Booking is recommended. At La Bimba everything…

Granja Petitbo – Barcelona

A treasure but not a hidden gem. Described by many others, yet positive every time so definitely worth a try. We had lunch at Granja Petitbo. Some highly friendly men took care of our dinner moment. A bit hipster but in the good way.  We ordered vegetarian lasagna, ceasar salad, waffle with pastrami and a…

‘T Werftje – Zeebrugge 

Every single person in Belgium knows ‘t Werftje. This authentic bar is hidden in between the Harbour channels of Zeebrugge, a city among the Belgian coastline. Here they serve the most gorgious shrimp croquettes. People come from far just for these amazing local deliscious croquettes. This place has some history. The third generation is now in…

The Cambridge St. Kitchen – London

Pimplico was new for us. A neighbourghood with mixed flavours and styles, and… the Cambridge St. Kitchen.  A place like you haven’t seen a lot before. A fresh take on modern luxury; great food, an authentic interior and skilled staff. We enjoyed our lunch on the terrace, and booked at the spot our breakfast for…

Arzak – San Sebastian

Our evening in restaurant Arzak in San Sebastian was the best michelin star experience we ever had.

Babo’s burgers – Leuven

Burgerbars are popping up in Leuven. You just tried a new one, and there’s another one. Babo’s burger bar just opened so we gave it a try. The staff was very friendly, and we had a really nice evening. The place was full, but it feels like there was room to add more tables. Being…

Kødbyens Fiskebar – Copenhagen

Must go.! 🙂 No frills wabi-sabi kind of place. Fast, warm and friendly staff.  The exterior doesn’t look fancy. We’re in the meat district here. Urban, young and a bit raw. Bur don’t hold back. Go in and enjoy. Lunch menu in Kødbyens Fiskebar is short and looks delicious. The wine list is impressive.  We…

Le Deuxième élément – Brussels

You know the Thai restaurants that serve the real stuff, the authentic Thai food? If so, you probably also know the Thai restaurants that create new Thai dishes. They use local flavors or experiment in many ways.  It’s not always easy to find the first ones, nor find a good one of the latter in…

Humphrey – Brussels

When the sous-chef of Noma (once the best restaurant in the world according to several ‘lists’) comes to your hometown and opens a restaurant ,you book the first table you can get. At least that’s what I did when I read the news. We went on a Monday evening in the 2nd or 3rd week…

Bangkok – Nahm

Locals and websites we had checked for references, told us going to Nahm is a great idea. It is the 5th best restaurant in Asia. So we entered the restaurant with very high expectations. Unfortunately, we ended the meal a bit dissapointed. The interior was ok, a bit dark, but cosy. Nothing special. Although the…

L’épicerie du cirque – Antwerp

A lot of people told us about this place and they were right, this is a gem in Antwerp. Small and cosy Scandinavian decor, young and friendly staff and definitely a michelin star food experience. We went there for lunch and had some amazing dishes: oysters with sauce Hollandaise, watercress and edible flowers on jackknife…
